than anybody else. but untreated, we have a problem. >> reporter: stannic is president obama's ear, using white house meetings to push for more resources to identify and treat the mentally ill and keep dangerous people away from guns. the problem can be seen as jails across the country like this one, where an estimated 25% to 30% of inmates suffer from a mental illness. expects say not all those people belong here. those that do sometimes struggle to get the care they need. 8 of 9 killers in mass shootings last year had histories ofmental illness. few received care and none were blocked from purchasing weapons. >> when we run the background check for you to purchase or acquire a hand gun, if we say it's okay, you should be good to go. the fact of the matter it's not. it's america's dirty little secret. >> reporter: just 12 states submit mental health data to the database, and only that do only include court ordered records. president obama said strengthening that system is a top priority, proposing money for states for better recordkeeping and asking doctors to report credible thre

[shouting] >> we will will recess for a few minutes. >> shepard: those demonstrators were protesting drone missile strikes against terror suspects. this week we got a look at the government guidelines for using those strikes to kill americans. in essence, top officials have to decide you are a senior terror leader and imminent threat to other americans and that it would be too dangerous to try to capture you. they do not have to go to court. they don't have to charge you with a crime. they don't have to give you a lawyer. senators from both parties demanded more documents and last night the justice department gave the intelligence committee the classified legal arguments for the government

to kill this man. he was also a u.s. citizen and the obama administration agreed to show congress the legal opinion justifies such attacks. the white house argues that from strikes effectively target america's enemies but critics cite heavy civilian casualties and the u.s. relies on them too much. >> the drone is the only weapon that really frightened insurgents. it is ineffective. we cannot possibly kill these people one at a time and expect to come out on top. >> they are clearly not invincible. iranian tv has shown these pictures that come from a u.s. surveillance drone they captured two years ago. it's interesting timing. >> with me here in the studio is a former adviser to president obama's special up is that it to afghanistan and pakistan. you understand this area of the world very closely. how important is this to the national security? >> it has killed a number of al qaeda leaders but it has not decimated the organization completely. it has pushed them to move into other areas of the middle east. also, at a very high political cost. it does cause an enormous amount of ange

for all practical purposes who is president obama's hit man or assassination czar. he has been at the center of a secret process where the white house is deciding who lives and dies around the world every day, yet the conversation that took place was as though there were talking about whether or not they're going to add a wing onto a school in idaho something. we were talking about life and death issues for people not only u.s. citizens, but around the world. there was no discussion at all of the so-called signature strike. the idea the u.s. is targeting people whose identities it does not know, whose actual involvement in terror plots is not known, no discussion of the fact the obama administration authorized operations that killed three u.s. citizens in a two-week time frame in 2011. one from was a 16-year-old boy who was sitting in having dinner with his cousins in yemen. no discussion of the case of samir khan, a pakistani-american who was killed alongside anwar awlaki. his family had met with the fbi prior to his death. the fbi told his family that samir khan was not indic

're welcome. ciis the obama administration policy really that much different than the bush administration policy when you look at the point of transparency and bringing that power to fight the war inside the bounds of the white house? >> well, i think one of the issues is that even if you buy into the idea of using these assassinating an american citizen with a drone, for example, which i don't, but even if you do, it's obama promised us tran parent see. he promised oversight checks and balances, not what george bush had allegedly given us, and look. in that memo it goes beyond almost the torture memo in the sense that there's almost no situation where the president can't kill somebody, you know. it's not -- as a legal document, i think the president obama that ran for office, even if he came to the conclusion when he was in office that look, there are people trying to kill us and we need to do this, would have at least tried to do something like a court, some sort of oversight. you have to make a case to some other person or a panel of judges. this is so far removed from who he presented

in 2009 president obama's nominee to head the cia who currently serves as the white house top counterterror advisor refuses to admit we're even fighting a war on terrorism. >> we're not wage ago war against terrorism because terrorism is, but a tactic that will never be defeated any more than the tactic of war will. rather, such thinking is a recipe for endless conflicts. we're not against terror because terror is a state of mind. >> sean: good grief. that's not all. just a few months later he said this about jihad. >> nor does president obama see this challenge as a fight against jihadist. describing terrorists in this way using a legitimate term jihad, to purify ones selves again a moral goal. >> so these comments and more will the senate confirm a cia director that calls jihad a legitimate tenet of islam? and joining me, gentlemen, welcome to the program. senator mike lee, jihad a legitimate tenet of islam. we're not fighting a war on terrorism? he's going to be the cia director? >> these are hardly mainstream beliefs sean, hardly someone we would expect of our top intellig

was coming at a moment when the administration was going to be more transparent. president obama last night ordered the justice department to share the classified memo with members of the senate and house intelligence committees. his aides indicated this was part of an effort to be more transparent and open about this program. but we heard very little of that from brennan today. >> well, it seems like the administration is saying, look, we're on solid legal ground, it's up to you to figure out whether we are or not. do you think the senators are on board with this? >> there's clearly divided views on the intelligence committee. some like senator wyden, senator udall, and a few others want to see those legal justifications. they can read them now. but by the way, under the rules set up by the justice department the staff and lawyers can't come in to examine them. only the senators can read it. they can't talk about it because it's still a classified memo. they couldn't ask brennan about it at all in the hearing. this is reminiscent in some ways of the way the bush administration briefed cong
